I’m Honored!

NT Wrong recently made a list of bibliobloggers and ranked them, and listed me as #1. I am puzzled and perplexed, honored and overwhelmed, touched, bemused, bewildered and just a tad overwhelmed! Thank you for bestowing this honor upon me! May your own blog speedily rise 14 ranks!

To put this in perspective, let me clarify (1) that this ranking is based merely on site traffic, (2) may be a fluke unlikely to be repeated on any other month, and (3) share the following disclaimer posted by NT Wrong: “In Biblical Studies the ability to write meaningful pieces that only you and, maybe, one other person in the world understand is the zenith of achievement. The Biblioblog Top 50 is thus no indication of the worth or otherwise of the blogs involved.”

Be that as it may, this is the first time he’s done this, and he listed me as #1, and I am truly honored.

Elsewhere around the biblioblogosphere, Mark Goodacre continues his series on dating New Testament documents, Antiquitopia continues to ask whether the Bible is socialist, Pisteuomen reflects on Halloween, Kata Ta Biblia questions NT Wrong’s blog labels, while Jim West believes he deserved the #1 spot. C.Orthodoxy, Threads from Henry’s Web and Notes From Off Center have posts on worshipping the golden calf. Ben Witherington has posts on The Changeling and the James ossuary. Chrisendom has a post on Bultmann and the incarnation.

    Congratulations James!Just wanted to drop in and let you know that on my most recent post on the Historical Jesus, I have made two comments responding to yours. The first one is kind of long as I have quoted Rook Hawkins (A very knowledgable guy, believe it or not) on the question of whether or not Paul spoke of a historical Jesus. Feel free to skip over some of that or to simply read it at a later time. My second comment responds to the issue of Jesus’ baptism and the principal of embarassment.Cheers,Ryan
